A 7-Eleven store clerk shot a robbery suspect last weekend, a source told WAVY-TV, leaving the man in critical condition.

Virginia Beach Police told the station they were called to a reported robbery at the convenience store at 1:06 a.m. Saturday — and when police arrived they found suspect Davin McClenney with a gunshot wound to his upper body.

He was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, WAVY reported.

McClenney was charged with two counts of robbery and wearing a mask in public, the station said, adding that 7-Eleven management said they couldn't comment on the case.

Turns out McClenney was arrested three other times for robberies, WAVY said, noting that he pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery in 2006.

He also was charged after a home invasion in July 2016, spent several months in jail ,and then was allowed to bond out in December, the station reported.

The Commonwealth Attorney’s office told WAVY it argued against McClenney bonding out but the judge nevertheless granted it.

McClenney was scheduled to go to trial on the charges in August, the station said.
